True, the Seahawks do take a big drop in schedule difficulty from what they faced in 2002 - indeed, they're getting the most favorable year-over-year change in the entire NFL - but unfortunately all three of their division rivals will see their schedules soften by almost as much (this is a feature of the new schedule format that accompanied the recent realignment). Until proven otherwise, both St. Louis and San Francisco clearly have better personnel than Seattle, so even a second-place finish in the NFC West - with or without a wild card - would have to be considered an upset.
